the other guys poster The Other Guys Trailer   Starring Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg.

This looks likes some good dumb fun. The Other Guys is a buddy-cop comedy from Anchorman, Talladega Nights and Step Brothers creators Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. The supporting cast is BRILLIANT – Rob Riggle, Michael Keaton, Eva Mendez, Steve Coogan, Anne Heche, Damon Wayons Jr, Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson. From the trailer it looks like this is what Cop Out wished it was (it was pretty poor). Ferrell is unrivalled at playing the fool, from what I’ve seen so far this get’s two thumbs up.

Set in New York City, The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell), a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets, and Detective Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg), a tough guy who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson), but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.
